Practice Ideology

Flansburgh Architects is a nationally recognized leader in the planning and design of educational and cultural facilities. Our innovative designs have won over 125 national and regional design awards, from industry peers and educators. Our work continues to be published in professional books and journals. Our architecture is driven by a belief that the quality of our surroundings directly influences the quality of our lives, whether on campus, in the workplace, at a show, or in the public realm. In that sense, design is all-encompassing, ranging from the functional and environmental performance of a building to a concern for its physical and cultural context, not least of which is the ‘poetic’ dimension, particularly how spaces are sculpted by natural light.
